Latitudes in 'NO SOUL FOR SALE', X Initiative New York, 24–28 June 2009
Held at X Initiative, NO SOUL FOR SALE – A Festival of Independents (24–28 June 2009) brought together over 30 not-for-profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and independent enterprises from Berlin, Milan, Dublin, Barcelona, Paris, Reykjavík, Hong Kong, Rabat, Trinidad, New York, Los Angeles, etc. that contribute to the international art scene by supporting a diverse cultural programme.

Latitudes set up a temporary office-base camp in the former Dia Center building on 22nd Street, transposing daily operations while presenting our publications and other paraphernalia. The office-'scenario' was conceived by the New York-based artist group The Bruce High Quality Foundation, incorporating dining furniture from the 'ruins' of an abandoned 1983 Burger King facility on Governors Island, where they shot 'Isle of the Dead', a zombie movie shown as part of Creative Time’s 'This World & Nearer Ones'.

During 'No Soul for Sale' Latitudes also premiered the 8 minute-long film '6 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective', the new version of a 1969 film by Dutch Conceptual artist Jan Dibbets (1941) and the inaugural project of Portscapes, the commission series taking place throughout 2009 in and around Maasvlakte 2, the 2,000 hectare to the Port of Rotterdam.
